Day 2 Alexandria/Cairo
In the morning, pay a visit to the impressive mosque of Abu Abbas al-Mursi, and then appreciate the fresh, Mediterranean air at Fort Qaitbey, which rests on the remains of the legendary Pharos Lighthouse. Visit the world-renowned and extremely impressive Bibliotheca Alexandrina, built to hold a staggering eight million books. Soak up the atmosphere of study, literature and scholarship at this inspirational building which also features museums, art galleries, a planetarium and laboratory. In the afternoon, travel back across the Egyptian sands to busy Cairo where this short but sweet trip comes to an end.
